Thirty teachers in Pursat province’s Phnom Kravanh district thumbprinted a complaint filed by a teacher, which alleges that district police officers beat and detained him, to the Ministry of Interior. Soa Narun, from Leach commune, said that three police officers beat him up and sent him to the district police office after he overtook them by motorbike on the road on January 27. “The police chief of Leach commune took me outside and slapped me on my face, grasped both of my hands to the back side and kicked me to the ground,” he said. Leach commune police chief Pok Vannak admitted that police had pulled Soa Narun’s hair, but denied they beat him.
